didnt go inside but it is very photogenic from the outside and is in heart of downtown next to a huge open square.... nice and pleasant area at night all lit up

This impressive building stands at the end of a long wall stretching out into the harbour beyond the Corniche. Lots of boats and dhows, both old and new.

Looks pretty good from the outside, but as it's not open at all, that's about it. Looks authentic and makes a good photo, but if you miss it, no problem.

A decent place to visit if you are in Qatar. It is full of history and gives you some good photographic sites

An old Port full of old dhows and you can rent there a cruise in Corniche. It has also a small Cafeteria. I think its one of the best places to take a photo for Doha Skyline (Towers)

Nothing really special about it just next to Souq Waqif and Al Fannar Center. You may pass by it why in Souq Waqif to check it out.

It’s a building but not letting anyone in. Must be under construction. There is not many tourist attraction in Doha city, so hope it opens soon (or at least signpost when it will be opening and what they are doing)

This is located very close to Souq Waqif. The don't allow people inside. All you can do is to take a photograph from the outside. Maybe if you are a good photographer, you can click a nice photograph against the night sky.

Surrounded by construction works and unable to access made this a wasted side trip from the souk. Check with your hotel if situation changes. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This is quiet impressive at night for some good photos. It is a look only so really it is only a five minute walk around
